Step 1: PREPARATION (Optional)
- Clear the floor surface of any removable objects. Sweep or vacuum any excess dirt and debris off of the flooring surface.
*WARNING: Do not walk on tiles that are not interlocked as they can be a slipping hazard. When installing your floor, be cautious of MMF tiles placed on top of one another.
Step 2: INSTALL TILE #1
- Facing your garage door opening, place Tile #1 in the top left corner with the pegged “male” sides facing the left and top.
*NOTE: A minimum expansion gap of 1⁄4” for perforated tiles (MMF Drain Thru) and 1⁄2” for all other styles (MMF Diamondplate) should be left at the walls and/or any other immovable objects such as cabinets, vehicle lifts, support beams, etc.
Step 3: INSTALL NEXT TILE
- Working left to right, interlock Tile #2 into Tile #1 making sure that loops and pegs are facing the same direction.
Step 4: COMPLETE ROW #1
- Continue interlocking tiles until the desired width of the first row is complete. If tiles do not fit perfectly, set aside extra tiles for custom trimming after the majority of flooring installation.
Step 5: CONTINUE TO ROW #3
- Begin your second row and continue interlocking tiles until the end of the third row has been reached.
Step 6: ATTACH EDGES
- Complete the first three rows, then connect edges to the first installed row nearest to the garage door entry.
*Note: Edges are only needed between the garage door rails. LOOPED Edge Into Tile
Looped Edge Into Tile
Lift up the tile and align the looped edge with the pegs of the tile and snap into place.
Pegged Edge Into Tile
Align the pegged edge over the looped side of the tile and snap into place.
Step 7: POSITION EDGES
- Position the first 3 rows of interlocked tiles and edges against the closed garage door for a precise fit.
*Note: If you have an elevated garage lip, please allow 2” of space between lip and edges. This will ensure even pressure and a secure floor every time you enter or exit your garage.
Step 8: INTERLOCK REMAINING TILES
- Continue on with remaining rows until desired lengths and widths are reached.
*Note: Cutting may be necessary along the back wall to complete install as well as the right side.
Step 9: (Optional) CUSTOM CUTS
- All MMF® tiles can be cut with an electrical saw such as a circular saw, jig saw, table saw, etc. A fine-toothed blade with more than 80 teeth is recommended.
*NOTE: When cutting tiles, position tiles accordingly to ensure they interlock with the rest of your installed flooring. Refer to the tool manufacturer’s safety guidelines.
